Back from Shanghai

My two week business trip has come to an end and I am getting back into the swing of things here at home. Business trips are a weird thing as its not a real vacation even though you might be somewhere fun. I was so busy that I did not have much time for sightseeing, just two days. I did manage to take some Gorn photos and write a few notes up, but I don’t think I have enough for a full trip Diary. I might just post something along the lines of “My first weekend in Shanghai”.

Mainland China (or Real China as I liked to refer to it while I was there) is so different from Hong Kong yet does have a lot of similarities. Granted, it was 10 years ago that I visited Hong Kong for the opening of Hong Kong Disneyland. The first few days were a bit rough as I was admittedly not prepared for all that Shanghai had to offer and was a bit overwealmed. After a few days and a fun weekend sightseeing and some fun days at work, I came around and learned to love where I was.

But Josh, why were you in Shanghai anyway? I know I know that’s a great questions and a separate blog post I plan on writing very shortly. Some of you already know, but I am not ready for the big announcement despite the fact it will have a huge impact on this web site and my life!

Already there are signs of its impact – My blog a day has been foiled around March 13 or so – really I have 5 drafts that I still need to retro post, but overall the gap during the trip will probably not be filled since my limited access to the Internet while in China prevented me from accessing good stuff and sadly I don’t have the time to go back and post.
